Main Purpose

As an agency of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the primary purpose of the Kentucky Board of Auctioneers is to protect the public. This is accomplished through examination, licensure, and regulation of auctioneers, apprentice auctioneers, limited livestock auctioneers and auction house operators.

This board is a self-supporting agency, funded by fees paid by Kentucky-licensed auctioneers and auction house operators. The Kentucky Board of Auctioneers does not receive any general fund tax monies.
